Mimestream 0.29.2

Mimestream updated its eponymous native macOS client for Gmail to version 0.29.1 with various new features, improvements, and bug fixes (see “Mimestream Brings Gmail Features to a Mac Email App,” 25 September 2020). The release adds an Open With contextual menu item for links and attachments, enables you to select a default composing font, initially collapses long lists of recipients to two lines, improves syncing to reduce the number of queries, fixes a bug that prevented embedded video elements from playing, resolves an issue that inserted the wrong signature after changing the From address, and ensures that dragging an attachment from the Desktop doesn’t create a text clipping. Shortly after this release, Mimestream 0.29.2 came out to support Gmail’s backtick shortcut to switch category inboxes and fix a crash that occurred when opening a compose window. Mimestream is free to use while it’s in beta. (Free, 8.5 MB, release notes, macOS 10.15+)

  1. I love Mimestream, and find the developers very responsive. But I keep on going back to Mail to quickly open a folder using MsgFiler. Why? Mimestream still doesn’t support Gmail “G” shortcuts like G L (go to label).

    It seems if you are using a Gmail-centric app that would be really important. It’s on their proposed improvement list. I hope all TidBITS readers who use Gmail go there and +1 vote for that improvement!
